“Fox attacks on endangered penguins have led Australia’s wildlife authorities to post snipers at night to protect the birds.” – FP

I have nothing against measures (albeit extreme) taken to protect endangered species. We’re probably in the middle of the sixth big, sweeping global extinction. Every species on the margin tells us something about the causes (or cause = us) of such a depletion of biodiversity. I don’t like penguins. I’m not completely sure why—maybe because there was a 18 month stretch there when every movie seemed to be about penguins acting all anthro… surfing penguins, marching penguins, &c.
